Powell wary of Wigan’s threat

Daryl Powell believes Wigan will provide a much sterner test against Castleford than when the teams last met three weeks ago.

The Tigers ran out comfortable 27-10 winners at Wigan, but Shaun Wane’s side have since won three in a row and Powell is expecting a difficult game on Saturday.

“They are in better form than the last time we played them because they’ve won three straight,” Powell told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“They’ve had a good Easter. They beat Catalans pretty comfortably last week and they’re going well. It’s a tough challenge and you’ve got to take your chances when they come because they don’t concede a whole heap of points.

“We’ve lost three games by a total of seven points though, so even when we’re not playing well we’re not far away.

“We’ve had a couple of tough days, but we’ve trained well and there’s been some fizz about us.

“There’s no panic about what we’ve got here – it’s just about tidying up the areas where we’ve not been that efficient.

“It’s a tough game, but we’re good enough to win it – we’ve shown that already this season. It’s about us being where we need to be with and without the ball.”
